"...always found California audiences pretty lifeless"

That's cause I was there.


[the one they mock, yelling: "Saint Stephen!", Marmaduke, high voice cued]

Excellent point, Furth! In fact, as I have admitted here and thankfully, not been skewered for, I often very purposefully kept myself straight for as much of each show as I could (it was actually difficult, as you can imagine...felt like Bill Graham having to evaluate EVERYTHING that ANYONE gave me, especially my girlfriends or buddies!) so that I could focus on the music...

Ironically, folks sometimes commented, just like we are with Jerry, that I didn't seem to enjoy myself enough! I often sat very intently, focused entirely on the stage without much more than a slow body sway and head bob...

I must agree (shocker) in part, at least with that. I enjoyed splitting my time between sober (at least partly, anyway) concert attendance and mind-bending chemical destruction. I found that I would enjoyt the concerts in different way, picking up on different things depending on the state of my brain. While sober I really got the quiet nuances of a show, and while "tweaked" I'd get more of the overall energy the show produced. Either way, they were experiences I will never forget. Kind of explains why I spend what spare time I have chatting with you freaks.

"lifeless" may be too harsh: I think I meant to say "mellow"

Is that for real? I always loved that bit of banter, but I thought it was Phil with the squeaky voice. Dude, you're immortal.

Oh, yeah--I think there are multiple times...the one I just heard last night is when Marmaduke is being asked to step up to the stage, and they mock someone calling out hits to play while they are clearly acoustic...you hear them all chuckling and Marmaduke says it this time (May of 70?).

I was lucky enough to be at that 1986 "Box" breakout at Hampton.

I'd say it was the biggest "crowd goes wild" I ever saw except for this one, which i was also lucky enough to attend: (80's St. Stephen breakout; first in 5 years:)
